I know we all loved Remote Control. I did too. It was a fun show. But it was the beginning of the end of MTV. The Real World just sealed the deal.

Remember Randee of the Redwoods? Good times.

Tabitha Soren was cute.

Those first few MTV Awards were pretty entertaining, too.

I wish MTV had kept on playing music videos. I kind of miss it sometimes.
